Mercury Retrograde in Gemini: May 29 - June 22 Pre-Shadow: May 14 - May 28 Post-Shadow: June 23 - July 7
You can watch the overview above and/or read through the guide which you will find below.
When working on your Conscious Spiritual Growth, I find it helpful to have a container in which you can do that work.
My Intrinsic Energy Work™ offers you that space. By tapping into the Intrinsic Energies™ of any given moment, you can use this as an opportunity to deepen your understanding of what you are working on, how you are working on it, and ultimately clear & heal, which is where your true growth happens.
Let’s take a look at how you can use the upcoming Mercury Retrograde in Gemini (2021) to deepen your healing & growth.
Intrinsic Energies™ of Mercury Retrograde in Gemini
As Mercury reverses course into its home sign of Gemini you can be on the lookout for having to double back on your communications and also for that quintessential moment of literally or figuratively getting to the kitchen, turning to go back the other way, and then turning to continue on – almost as if you hit an invisible pivot table and you can’t figure out which way to go. Expect to change your mind more often than not, and to feel confused about why you are doing it.
I’m already noticing cluttered thoughts, scrambled words, and flip-flopping decisions.
Intrinsic Energy Work™ Tools For General Support
During this period it will be helpful to utilize your Intrinsic Energy Work™ tools of Grounding and Alignment as well as owning your Certainty. (If you don’t have tools, you can start by building your Daily Practice space with this offering.)
In addition to using your tools to help you navigate this Retrograde, here are ways you can use this Mercury Retrograde period to deepen your healing and growth.
Let’s look at Gemini’s traits first and then consider them in terms of communication and Mercury Retrograde Intrinsic Energies™
Gemini is the sign associated with communication, logical thought processes (based on duality), and the conscious mind. Gemini people tend to be airy and intellectual, glib of tongue, and curious about life and other people. They can experience two sides of things at the same time and may tend to be flighty. https://www.astrograph.com/learning-astrology/gemini.php
Gemini is an Air sign.
The Air element is the masculine or yang energy representing the breath or prana – the realm of ideas and archetypal associations that link the physical and non-physical world together. Air people tend to live in their heads, being logical and scientific, as well as curious about what is around them and detached in their outlook. https://www.astrograph.com/learning-astrology/gemini.php
Intrinsic Energy Work™ For Mercury Retrograde in Gemini May 29 – June 22
The situation and story that has arisen in your life between May 14 and Mercury going retrograde on May 29, is what you will be working on through to July 7. So you want to be on the lookout for that situation or story in order to gather insight from it.
This Retrograde period can be seen as a doubling back and as an opportunity to see if you really want to be following through on the thoughts & ideas that have been propelling you forward. Use it also to clear outdated concepts that have informed your choices up until now.
I see this Mercury Retrograde period as a centrifuge separating out those thoughts, ideas, and concepts that no longer serve you. Your opportunity is to see them and most importantly CLEAR them! I yelled ‘clear’ because that is the part people tend to miss. They see the information, but then they don’t do anything with it. It’s one of the reasons my Intrinsic Energy™ growth work is so transformative.
Here are a few things you can do: Spend some time reflecting on:
what is happening in your life right now?
what challenges are you having?
what theme is coming up?
who is involved and how & why they are involved?
in what way is this connected to thoughts or communication?
what outdated ideas, thoughts, and concepts are you operating from?
Once you have an overview of what is up for you then move to work on it. Here are a few questions to ask yourself:
What Core Life Lesson am I working on in this situation? (read my Core Life Lesson primer on the three Core Life Lessons and take the quiz to get a general overview if you don’t know.)
What can I learn about how I communicate?
What can I learn about how I receive communication?
Where do I need to re-evaluate my thoughts, ideas, and concepts that are driving my actions and decisions?
Where am I acting and responding based on someone else’s information or beliefs?
The most important part of Intrinsic Energy Work™ isn’t in the information gathering, it’s what you do with it. Once you have reflected on the questions above, next you want to move into your Daily Practice space and clear out anything that has surfaced. What exactly can you clear out:
old ways of doing things.
filters through which you hear.
filters through which you speak.
outdated ideas, concepts, and thoughts.
the ideas, concepts, and thoughts of others, if they don’t serve you.
I hope you find this guide supportive in deepening your healing & growth.
You can share what comes up for you and post any questions.
